How does it taste?

This tea has a light but refined flavour. It has a refreshing fragrance combined with a slight aroma of roasted rice.

How/when to enjoy it?

As soon as you get up, prepare piping hot Obukucha to bring out the fragrance and aroma. It's a good tea for waking you up. The flavour doesn't linger long, so the tea does a great job in a supporting role for any meal. It's the first tea that comes to mind at this time of year, regardless of the occasion.

What to enjoy it with?

It's a great match for confections like dorayaki or monaka that have a slightly fragrant pastry or wafer crust and a sweet and moist filling. Obukucha with a mochi lightly browned in an oven toaster. Heavenly!

How do Ippodo staff enjoy it?

When the New Year arrives, it's time for Obukucha! The teabag format makes this a good gift for someone who doesn't have a kyusu teapot. As a present, it has the additional merit of conveying your wishes for good health.

  • What is Obukucha?

    An auspicious tea for celebrating the New Year and driving away any nasty aftertaste from the year before. Its roots go back over a millennium to Kyoto in the Heian Period. The type of tea used for obukucha differs according to the tea merchant's own traditions. Ippodo's Obukucha (Good Fortune Tea) is a special blend of genmaicha. It uses higher grade green tea leaves and a smaller proportion of roasted rice than our year-round Genmaicha to bring out the flavour of the leaves.
